LSA-501

Fire Detection and Monitoring (FD&M)
Fire Detection and Monitoring (FD&M) explores the capability of SEVIRI/MSG to detect and monitor active fires, particularly over Africa and Europe.
Fires are an important and highly variable source of air pollution emissions in many regions of the world and they constitute a significant factor controlling the interannual variability of the atmospheric composition.

Fire Radiative Power (FRPPixel)
The FRPPIXEL product records information on the location, timing and fire radiative power (FRP, in MWatts) output of landscape fires ("wildfires") detected every 15 minutes across the full Meteosat disk at the native spatial resolution of the SEVIRI sensor. It has been demonstrated in small-scale experimental fires that the amount of radiant heat liberated in a fire per unit time...

LSA-503

Fire Radiative Power - Gridded (FRPGrid)
The FRPGRID product records information on the location, timing and fire radiative power (FRP, in MWatts) output of landscape fires ("wildfires") detected across the full Meteosat disk. It is based upon the FRPPixel product produced by the LSA SAF every 15 minutes...

Fire Risk Map (FRM)
Rural fires are common events in ecosystems characterized by oscillations between rainy and drought periods, which inevitably lead to high levels of vegetation stress and to the accumulation of fuels during the dry phase. This is particularly true in Mediterranean region, where rainy and mild winters are followed by warm and dry summers.
